I would like to reuse my list definition to have 2 list instances of the same thing.

Is this possible?

Did you ever find the solution to this? If yes, could you post the answer? – Kit Menke Jul 29 '11 at 21:02

Yes, it is. The solution is this:
Case 1. You have ListDefinition and ListInstance in one project.
Add new ListInstance item into your project and set the same TemplateType property.: enter image description here

Case 2. ListDefinition already has been deployed
You need to know TemplateType. Read this post.
